Fishing Nicaragua with Johan Wessels and the Fishing Pro Shop

Fishing Nicaragua: Jungle Waters

Introduction to fishing Nicaragua jungle waters

Johan Wessels of the Fishing Pro Shop in Pretoria East, got himself as far-flung as possible last week, in his quest to catch that tarpon. All 150lbs of the beast fish!

But it wasn’t ALL about the flash tarpon fish that Johan and crew were after. The jungle waters of Nicaragua teem with the most pretty of species.

Over to Johan’s running commentary…

[21:42, 17/10/2019] Johan: Been out fishing the jungle and throwing small spinnerbaits and rapalas at the submerges trees…
Here are some pictures
[21:42, 17/10/2019] Johan: Rainbow bass on small spinner bait
[21:42, 17/10/2019] Johan: Bluegill sunfish on small rapala
[21:42, 17/10/2019] Johan: Also managed this snook
[21:42, 17/10/2019] Johan: Here is a short video of the jungle
[21:42, 17/10/2019] Johan: Lots of small fish, amazing fishing in all that flooded structure and easy to see why it holds so many fish

After the team took a well needed break they started preparing for another day in the wild jungle. Fishing Nicaragua style!

[14:05, 19/10/2019] Johan: So the fishing is done and we start heading back this morning.
Yesterday’s jungle fishing was a bit of a dud fishing wise, but the jungle is indescribable… we would be travelling on a small creek, hardly big enough for a small johnboat to travel through and then it opens up into a lake big enough to rival most of our inland waters….
We did set out for a last tarpon session and i finally hooked up on fly and staying hooked up for 10 m before straightening yet another hook…
The take was ferocious and i have blisters on my fingers to prove it…
[14:06, 19/10/2019] Johan: So from here it is Cesna back to costa rica, followed by an afternoon flight to London and the tomorrow evening home to Jozi…

What a trip! Not to mention two days of travelling home!
